Mostly all of America will recognize Chris Geere as Jimmy Shive-overly on FXs hilarious, at-times slapstick comedy; You’re The Worst, where he shares the screen with his on again, off again on-screen beau, Gretchen, played by Aya Cash. The 35-year-old is here to hold and keep the place of the anti-hero on television.

Coming off a whirlwind year, the rising star reflects on his character and the little show that could, prime-time’s favorite love story for the new age.
